AbstractA field investigation program on waves was carried out in the Weser estuary, German Bight of the North Sea. Wave height and period distributions in this complicated wave climate can be approximated by a Rayleigh distribution. Empirical distributions of the wave heights characterise the different regions of the estuary. The presence of wave grouping as well as the group bounded long waves are shown in a few examples. The necessity of further investigations and analysis is highlighted.
